Casa Castillo "Vino de Finca" Tinto '17

This wine from Casa Castillo offers the perfect representation of the sheer value that Spanish wines offer.

Jumilla is a starkly beautiful wine region located along the Mediterranean coast of Spain, southwest of the city of Valencia.

The history of Casa Castillo dates back to 1941 when the land was purchased by the grandfather of current winemaker, José Maria Vicente. At the time, they discovered remnants of an old winery that existed on that property, including old vines that had likely been planted in the 1870’s, during a time when many French refugees fled France during the time of phylloxera.

In 1985 José Maria and his father began to replant the vineyards, largely to the native grape Monastrell (a.k.a Mourvèdre). This heat and drought resistant varietal works perfectly in the vineyards of Casa Castillo and the region of Jumilla. The altitude of the Casa Castillo vineyards, are one of the big reasons that they can produce full-bodied wines, yet with freshness and balance.

In 2015, José Maria introduced a new wine to his line-up called “Vino de Finca.” While his winery is famous for its Monastrell, over the years he had been grafting over a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that existed on property, replacing it with Garnacha.

”Vino de Finca” combines 75% old-vine Monastrell with 25% Garnacha. The grapes are hand harvested, partially destemmed, and fermented with natural yeasts in 1200-liter French oak vats. The wine is further aged in a combination of 500-liter and 5,000-liter French oak vats.

This brilliance of this wine is its ability to showcase its full-bodied dark fruit, herb and spice notes, along with remarkable balance. The wine doesn’t feel too overblown, the alcohol is in check, but make no mistake it is a perfect wine to pair with grilled red meat such as lamb chops or ribeye steaks.
